Can anyone help me with outdoor action shots?
I have a Fuji S6000fd, and I have to struggle to get good action shots. Yes, I know, I post a lot of action shots, but I miss ones that are even much better. I've missed some really priceless ones, because I can't figure out how to capture them without blurring! (Laurelin, you take the most amazing freaking outdoor action shots, got any advice??
First, I have the camera on sports mode. The problem is, I have to "focus" on one of the dogs and 99.9% of the time, it struggles to focus on them, and instead focuses on the grass, the fence behind them, a tree behind them...
And then, if they are already running or jumping in motion, it's even harder to follow them with the camera and get it to focus before I can take the shot.
Any advice on this? Or advice on how to get action shots easier? (Or better, for that matter
